Is it possible to restore archived task items?
When an ipm.task item is archived it strips away the attachments. What happens or is supposed to happen if I want to restore to outlook this archived ipm.task item that had attachments but are now shown only as links in the task?
It appears to me that it somehow looses the attachments and restores only the body?
This is what happened and I'm trying to understand it:
Client asked to archive also the ipm.task items to release space in exchange - i did.
Client noticed the attachment stripping method and was not happy and asked me to restore the tasks - I did with the export tool and made it to delete the restored items from the archive. But I the box in exchange was not big enough and restoring failed partly. Now there are still some task items in archive 'cause there simply isn't enough space for them in the mailbox in question. The problem now is that there is an item in archive which had attachments but now that the user tries to open the links it only states that "the item is no longer in archive". Is it possible that it some how restored the attached items to outlook but did not do it for this main item? Or what the h*ll happened so that the attachments are gone from the archive?
Can anyone explain this?
